Aliens Love Underpants! by Claire Freedman  (Author), Ben Cort (Illustrator)

'Aliens love underpants, in every shape and size, But there are no underpants in space, so here's a big surprise...' You probably thought aliens came down to Earth with a view to taking over the planet - but, no, they simply want to steal your pants! This zany, hilarious tale, delightfully brought to life by Ben Cort's vibrant illustrations, is sure to enchant and amuse the whole family. With a madcap, rhyming text, perfect for joining in, this story is fantastically fresh and funny - you'll laugh your pants off!
